The Long Island Iced Tea (LIIT) is the basis of many elaborate mixed-drinks. It dates to the 70s, named after the USA's largest island, Long Island, in New York. Although it doesn't contain tea, its taste is similar. The drink sits in the top 5 of most popular cocktails and is regularly mentioned or seen served in television and films (worthy mentions are The Simpsons, Sex and the City and Cruel Intentions).
